    You apparently have not socialized much with INTPs, have you?

    The question (and I don't mean this in a mean way) seems ignorant. The behavior you're confused about seems typical for INTPs -- they love to get together to socialize especially in the area of amusement... bounding off each other with Ne and talking to "sensible" people who follow their thought processes for once.

    So, in a sense, even when the dialog includes personal conversation, it's still approached somewhat impersonally/whimsically.

    That's my impression as well.

    I haven't socialized much with any type, honestly, or at least I didn't get to know any of them well enough to guess their types. I've talked to several people, but I didn't get to know most of them well enough to tell you their last name, or really meet most of them again. I think most of the people I know in real life are S's, and I don't think I've met any INxx's... not more than three throughout my entire life.

    The question (and I don't mean this in a mean way) seems ignorant.

    I'm basing these questions off of MBTI theory, not experience. I kind of expected it was something like that... an interest in external ideas (Ne) somehow overshadowing the undercurrent of Fe existing in the situation. I just wanted to see how someone responded. So that's why the problems and stress for them only arise in more pointedly emotional circumstances. As long as the Fe can work mostly unconsciously, they're fine.
    So, in a sense, even when the dialog includes personal conversation, it's still approached somewhat impersonally/whimsically.
    So... INTP's have ENTP qualities as well, then? That would explain a lot. Of course, I already know that INTP's feel/express emotions under stress... so that's just about everything, I guess.

    I could have messed something up, but so far it seems to have broken down as such:

    P 52.19%
    J 40.26%

    T 58.49
    F 33.96

    N 83.64
    S 8.81

    I 77.36
    E 15.09

    With the remainder going to the borderlines and undecideds.

    I have never seen the trend work any differently on the internet.
    We all know that INs rule the internet, and INTPs are always the most common of all.
    I just don't think ES people are in the right mindset for internet socialization.
    As for why T always seems to moderately lead F, I figure it might just be because the internet is kind of a sterile and unemotional environment?
    I have no idea about the J/P dichotomy, but it's always the smallest one.

    I, highly expressed
    N, highly expressed (something ridiculous like 90/10)
    F, slightly expressed (I'm 45/55)
    J, moderately expressed

    .
    I think it has to do with MBTI being a theory and thus attracting more intuitives who, for the most part, enjoy theoretical conversation. I also post at a travel forum and I find quite a few S types there. Also, social networking sites, such as Myspace, have plenty of ES types. It's just a matter of interests, I think. IN's happen to enjoy analyzing the crap out of themselves.

    Gosh, that took me by surprise. I've never seen the Internet that way. Apart from mental stimulation and practical purposes, I use it for music, stories, self-expression, keeping in touch with people... 'feely' things. It could never be sterile to me. Haha. Funny how we have such different perspectives.

    I can't believe there's only one ISFP on this site, and they're bearly even active.

    Of all the ISFP:s I've known, I've hated everyone. Maybe they've all been scared off by the INTJ:s.

    This thread has more accurate numbers.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.
